    I made this in the crockpot and the lentils basically melted so I think I will try it on the stove. Overall, a nice basic soup. Would add more spices and veggies next time I make it. - 6/24/10

  • Very good. I didn't have lentils. Used dal instead, to which I added minced garlic & 1/2 tsp tumeric. Used 2 onion boullion cubes & 1 tbsp marmite for broth flavouring. - 8/15/10
